Personal incidental expenses allowance
What is a personal incidental expenses allowance?
It is an allowance that can be paid when all meals in a 24-hour period are covered, and you therefore do not qualify for a subsistence allowance (subsistence allowance – deduction for meals = 0). The PIES allowance is intended to cover minor expenses for soft drinks, newspaper, fruit etc.
